Hot Tuna Offer!!!
This is an offer to all Hot Tuna/Jorma fanatics here on the forum. I have just converted a Hot Tuna show from tape to digital. To the first TEN folks who e-mail me their postal address, i will mail you the lossless FLAC files on one CD disk. Lossless is my preferred trading method. Of course, i realize that there are some/many here who do not work within the lossless realm, and so if you really, really must have this show and cannot convert from FLAC into WAV, please indicate in your e-mail to me and i will send you the show on two CDs ready for playing in your player. If you live overseas, not a problem, will send airmail too.
As most here know, Hot Tuna does not support the uploading of their shows via bit torrent, thus my offer here, else i would upload to one of the usual trackers.
This show is really quite nice, with very good sound, and a setlist that has many of the regular rotation Hot Tuna staples. Killing Time In The Crystal City is a particular standout for me, as is the Mann's Fate.
I will post the setlist below, but just to let you know that i tracked this so that the tuning/crowd between-song segments are left at the end of the tracks, and so each track begins at start of song, though i think in one or two tracks i left a tiny bit of the pre-song noodling on there. However, i tracked this as best i could.
I am not an audio genius. I have converted many, many tapes into digital largely for my own use. I think i do alright given my limited knowledge and equipment. If any of you have tapes that are just rotting away, and you think they may be something that should be brought out into the light, please convert them into digital. Yes, many prefer tapes, but realistically speaking, the shelf life of that analog tape is limited at best. Get them converted. If you have questions about doing this, e-mail me.
This show is NOT found listed at etree. However, it IS found at tunabase:
It is the complete show as is circulated and known.
This will not fit on one 80 minute disk. I could have shaved off some of the tuning/crowd portions to fit on one disk. However, that would have been sacriligious, because if you know Jorma/Hot Tuna, then you of course know that even when Jorma is tuning, it is a pleasure to listen to. He is that good, and probably after Jerry, one of my favourite guitarists, and in moments, my favourite.
Please when you e-mail me, indicate in the subject line something like Hot Tuna Show, since i don't want to confuse it with the multitude of spam that works its way through the e-mail filters.
And to all those who trade with me regularly, and who desire this show, just get in touch with me via the usual channels.
Lastly, i don't know how many will respond to this post. I only ask that if i receive more than TEN requests, that someone of the TEN who do receive this show, post a re-offer here on the forum. Wish i could provide a sample of the sound, because this show really is quite sweet. Enjoy!
